  • 1 package Uncle Dan's Chipotle Ranch Seasoning & Dip mix (or more for extra heat)
  • 3 (18-ounce) cans whole tomatillos, drained
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 pounds ground turkey
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried oregano, crumbled
  • 2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 (4-ounce) cans mild chopped green chilies, drained
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal
  • 1 (19-ounce) can white beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup chopped fresh coriander, or dried coriander to taste
  • Sour cream for garnish


  1. In a large heavy kettle, cook the chopped onions and minced garlic cloves in vegetable oil over moderate heat until the onions are softened.
  2. Add ground cumin and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  3. Add the ground turkey and cook, stirring and breaking up lumps, until the meat is no longer pink.
  4. Stir in the Uncle Dan's Chipotle Ranch Seasoning & Dip mix, drained tomatillos, chicken broth, water, bay leaf, dried oregano, and salt.
  5. Simmer the chili uncovered for 1 hour, adding more water if needed to keep the turkey barely covered.
  6. Stir in the chopped green bell pepper, drained green chilies, and cornmeal. Continue simmering, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
  7. Add the white beans, chopped fresh coriander (or dried coriander), remaining minced garlic cloves, and salt to taste. Simmer for an additional 3 minutes, or until heated through.
  8. Discard the bay leaf.
  9. The chili can be made ahead and cooled, then refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 1 week.
  10. Serve the Chipotle Ranch Turkey Chili in bowls, garnished with a dollop of sour cream.
